[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Where / 哪里 / 어디 / Ở đâu

“どこ(doko)” means “Where” and which has been used as the meaning of “to, at, or in what place”. The basic way to use it is “___はどこにですか?(Where is ___)”, etc. For instance, “それはどこですか?(Where is it?)”, “レジはどこですか?(Where is the cashier?)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “どこ” IS ONLY USED AS “WHERE”, unlike “どっか”. And it is also used as “どこに” and “どこで” as the meaning of “どこ” such as “どこにいますか?(Where are you now?)”, “それどこでいましたか?(Where did you buy it?)”, etc. Everyone could use “どこ” as casual, polite and formal such as “それはどこなの?(Where is it?)” as casual and “それはどこですか?(Where is it?)” as polite and formal.
